Skinning is a Non-Combat Skill that is described in game as "Skill in the act of removing fur or skin from an animal. This can result in both hides and meats. You need to be carrying a Skinning Knife in order to skin a corpse. Corpses of sentient creatures, such as Goblins and Humans, can't be skinned."
In order to skin an animal you must have a Skinning Knife in your inventory, like the Simple Skinning Knife. When you kill an enemy and search it's corpse it you should now have another option to 'Skin Corpse', much like an autopsy kit will give you the option to 'Autopsy' the creature.
Depending on your skinning skill you will either botch the skinning attempt netting you one experience and no items, or you will get one or more items added directly to your inventory and experience equal to the difficultly to skin the animal multiplied by how many items you received.
The items received by skinning can be used by the Tanning skill.
